Fernando Torres: I will always support Atletico Madrid


Milan striker Fernando Torres says the Rossoneri have to learn to infiltrate the opposition's defence.

The 30-year-old is on loan from Chelsea and scored his first goal for Milan in the 2-2 draw against Empoli last month but is aware that it is very difficult in the Serie A to exploit spaces left by the opposition.

"What's the best type of football for me? It's not necessarily about the league you play in," Torres told the Corriere della Sera.

"It's all about the team you play for and the moment the club is going through.

"We were not considered a big team back when I was at Atletico Madrid and the opposition would give us plenty of space to attack.

"But at Milan it's different, all teams park the bus at the back."

Asked what he remembers of Atletico Madrid, Torres said: "I was born and raised at Atletico.

"I don't care who is playing, I will always support them. I'm proud I helped them in their rise and with the financial boost from my departure.

"Real Madrid or Barcelona? If I ever return to the Liga it will be to play again with Atletico. Barca and Real are not a step ahead of the colchoneros."
